However, Fallon's jibe at Sharif over his awkward moment at SCO meeting did not go down well with a section of social media users. "Hey@jimmyfallon- have u talked abt the devastating floods destroying Pakistan? "A nation of 220 million people" is destroyed by climate change because of YOUR country's greed & wastefulness. If u haven't donated or raised funds for us u don't get to use us as a joke," a netizen tweeted.
"Deeply offensive that@jimmyfallonchose to mock 220 million people of Pakistan for a leader allegedly put in place after US-instigated regime change, while completely ignoring the suffering caused by devastating floods & climate change. Tone-deaf much?" another user wrote.
